Recovery of bacterial (a) and phage (b) DNA from mock samples loaded onto swabs in varying amounts. Shown are recoveries for the VLP fraction (cyan), remainder fraction (gray), and unfractionated (white) samples, as determined by qPCR. Negative controls for qPCR containing no template were not quantifiable after 40 cycles of PCR. Error bars indicate standard deviation among biological triplicates
